Site Rules and Guidelines
It is much more enjoyable to be in a community where you can trust others, where they trust you, and you feel free to be yourself.
In this community, every person's words can be read by thousands of people. To encourage responsible usage of this platform, we have set some simple guidelines that we implore you to observe. DenseLayers is guided by two principles above all: Kindness and Courage.
First, the foundation of this community is the purpose of being helpful and collaborative. As a member, it would be great if you gave others encouragement and empathy.
Second, all research is essentially a search for truth. It takes courage to share your true opinions and feelings, and it also takes courage to receive the truth. Hopefully, you will try to do both on DenseLayers.
With that purpose in mind:
- Write every post with the intention of being helpful - to the community, to the authors of the paper, and to yourself. Be polite, and you will inspire others to be polite.
- As much as possible, write each post as an independent response to the respective section of the research paper. Meaning, avoid writing "reactions" to other people's posts. Your posts should still make sense if other posts were removed.
- Please don't hesitate to write a post even if you think others have already done a "good job" explaining a paragraph. If you think that what you say could be helpful, please write it anyway.
- If you are annoyed by or greatly disagree with what is written in a paper, avoid being harsh towards the authors. Nicely point out what you think is wrong or right.
- (Suggestion) Smile while writing your post - it will help you automatically follow all the rules above!
